Hemlock Peak

The cloudy weather was actually nice as it wasn't too hot and the clouds were high so we still got our good views. Sprinkled a couple of times on us and we got graupel at the top.
Snow on the ascent from the saddle to the top is very steep, this is a somewhat high end snow scramble.
We decided to exit on the South side. For South side exits the more snow, the better and make sure you go far enough South to make it down past the worst of the cliff bands. We ended up having to traverse back up quite a ways in one bad draw to go further South to a point where it went through.
Overall a very good day.
